From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Adeodatus is Augustine's son by his long-term mistress. He's very smart (for a sixteen year-old, ha) and is baptized at the same time as Augustine. But he dies young. Augustine says that he loves his son even though his existence is the result of his sin. He thinks that Adeodatus was so intelligent and good that his awesomeness outweighs the fact that he was born of sin.
